It is an engaging and inspiring account of Lord Hanuman, the fearless fighter who sets the city of Lanka ablaze with his burning tail, the humble messenger who informs Mother Sita of Lord Rama’s victory over Ravana, the noble fellow warrior who uproots Dronagiri, a mountain of herbs, to save Lakshmna’s life, et al. The book also has folk tales, local lore about Hanuman temples across India and Hanuman prayers. All in all, a very interesting book on our Monkey God.
